Stretching Your Dies: One Die Four Cards featuring Scrappy Tails

Hi friends. When I saw Jennifer McGuire’s video featuring the Slimline Bird House Pop Up Card Dies and add-on dies from Scrappy Tails, I knew I had to have them. They remind me of the Honey Bee Stamps House Card Dies and Add-ons which as you may have figured out I love so much! These dies are just as versatile and allow you to make tons of different types of cards for all occasions.

For the first card, I started by diecutting the Slimline Bird House and the side pieces which create the pop up feature from Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock (retired) with the Scrappy Tails Slimline Bird House Pop Up Card Dies. Then diecut the roof, base, and 2 scalloped circles from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″. I diecut the woodgrain from Stampin’ Up! Chocolate Chip 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock (retired) with the Scrappy Tails Slimline Woodgrain Background Die and adhered the negative pieces onto the card front.

I cut out the two windows using the circle from the birdhouse die set. I adhered the scallop bosrders on the window as well as the roof. Then diecut some grass using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border from Stampin’ Up! Granny Apple Green 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock, trimmed it down to size and adhered it to the bottom of the card. I added the white base on top of the grass.

I stamped some leaves and flowers from the Catherine Pooler Designs Bloomin Bouquet and Lovely Flowers Stampsets (both were from Stamp of Approval collections no longer available) onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler Designs Lime Rickey, Catching Rays, Flirty Fuchsia and Coral Cabana Inks. For the sentiment I used the direct-to-paper technique with Flirty Fuchsia and Coral Cabana Inks onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and diecut “HOME” 2x and “tweet” from the Scrappy Tails Slimline Bird House Pop Up Card Dies. Lastly I adhered the two side panels and the card back.

I left the inside of the card blank.


For the second card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5 3/4″ then diecut it with the Slimline Bird House from the Scrappy Tails Slimline Bird House Pop Up Card Dies, making sure to leave on edge of the die off the edge of the card base. I also diecut a second house front which will be adhered on the front of the card.

I diecut the roof 2x, chimney, and window frames from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Scrappy Tails Slimline Bird House Pop Up Card Dies and Scrappy Tails Slimline Neighborhood House Pop Up – Add On Die.

Basic Gray 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock and adhered the bricks only to the house and chimney. Then adhered the chimney to the back of the house. I also adhered one roof to the front of the card and the other to the inside after adhering the panel to the card base.I diecut several of the snow drift border with the from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″.

I left the inside of the card blank.


For the third card, I started by cutting a piece of Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Grape 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 4 x 9″ then diecut it with the Slimline Bird House from the Scrappy Tails Slimline Bird House Pop Up Card Dies, making sure to leave on edge of the die off the edge of the card base. I also diecut a second house front which will be adhered on the front of the card and a chimney.

On the inside of the card, I diecut one house from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Scrappy Tails Slimline Bird House Pop Up Card Dies and cut down about 1/4 inch smaller. Then stamped a sentiment from Catherine Pooler Designs Everything but the Broom Stamp Set with Memento Black Tuxedo Ink.

Another great add-on dieset from Honey Bee Stamps! The Farmhouse Add-on Dies and Stampset coordinate with the House Builder Card Base Dies and allow you to make lots of cute cards.

Fun Fold Sweet Ice Cream Thank You Card and Using Your Older 6 x 6 Paper Pads

Hi everyone! I was playing with the Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Ice Cream Stampset and tried to think of a card I can make using minimal supplies and taking advantage of all the paper in my stash! Here’s what I came up with.

I used Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ cut to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make the card base and cut off 1-1/2″ from the front right side of the card base. I also cut a piece of Stampin’ Up! 6 x 6 Subtles (retired) polka dot paper in So Saffron to 3 x 5-1/2″ and a piece of Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow 6 x 6 Petite Paper Pack to 1/2 x 5-1/2″ which I adhered to the front of the card and a piece of pink polka dot paper from the Doodlebug Designs 12 x 12 Milk and Cookies Petite Print Assortment (not sure if it’s available anymore) for the inside, which I cut to 1-3/8 x 5-1/2″.

I stamped the ice cream cone from Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Ice Cream Stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Stampin’ Up! Sahara Sand Ink (cone) and Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake Ink (waffle pattern), and four ice cream scoops with Catherine Pooler Designs Be Mine, Lime Rickey, It’s a Boy and Serenade Inks. I also stamped the highlight that comes in the stampset with Lawn Fawn Yeti Ink on the pink and blue scoops and sprinkles on the green and purple scoops with Catherine Pooler Designs Over Coffee Ink and adhered the ice cream pieces to the card.

I stamped and fussycut the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Ice Cream Stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I finished it off by adding some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dark Walnut.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Ice Cream Stampset with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and the ice cream cone with Stampin’ Up! Sahara Sand Ink and the scoop with Catherine Pooler Designs Be Mine Ink.
